Ten Years From Now: Fantasy vs. Reality

Since I don't want to think about what I need to do ten minutes from now (dishes), I'll jump on Susan's bandwagon and talk about what my life may be like ten years from now.

I thought it would be fun to have two lists: fantasy and reality.

So as I figuratively close my eyes, I'll try to fantasize about what I could be up to in 10 years. Let's pretend that I could possibly be saying these things at the sexy age of 51!
  1. "My abs miraculously tighten overnight."
  2. "My children, I appreciate your gift of this beach house."
  3. "Tell Hugh (Jackman) that I'll be ready for our tennis lesson shortly."
  4. "I just love eating those delicious calorie free chocolate chip muffins!"
  5. "Me? You would like me to read my poetry for the President?"
Well now I'll end my silliness and think about more realistic quotes from me ten years from now.
  1. "You have to strengthen my eyeglasses prescription again???"
  2. "Honey, I'm still waiting for a conversation topic from you."
  3. "My son, please don't tell me that you really got married in Vegas."
  4. "I guess the gray is here to stay. I need my color fix pronto."
  5. "I'm so happy that I self-published my poetry."
That's all I have for this improv post. Now I need to get moving and tackle those dishes.

This is a cute post!! I certainly hope you self publish your poetry which is totally realistic. Writing may be in your future. As to the other things, you never know what can happen. Hope your present and future is bright :)

Kitten said...

Girl, I thought Hugh Jackman was MINE!!! But if you insist, you can have him on alternate Tuesdays and the fifth Sunday of the month. ;)

Caroline said...

Yes, you will self publish!!! Great lists. Have fun with Hugh...can I have my lesson after yours?

welcome to my world of poetry said...

I don't even want to think of ten years ahead at my age it's quite frightening.

Love your view of things though.

Yvonne,

Hilarious! We all need to get lost in our own lost once in a while!

Ken Devine said...

That's good so long as you don't WAIT ten years to self-publish. Even a year not making significant progress is as inconceivable as not washing the dishes for the same period and being 40 love up on Hugh...whoever Hugh is!

I like the humour...don't laugh at my spelling; it's correct this side of the pond!

Hahahah! I love this Kelly! You crack me up!

The reality doesn't sound that bad to me actually!

Joanne said...

A little from the first list, a little from the second ... Wishing you a bright and happy ten years :)

Owning the Words said...

A fun read and I think all five in the fantasy world is doable realistically. I don't even want to know what awaits me ten years from now. Hopefully it's Kevin Durand and a beach....

Teresa @ ♥ TOO MANY HEARTBEATS ♥ said...

You are always so funny! I don't even want to think about what will be going on 10 years from now. The last 10 years have not exactly been a bed of roses, I can definitely tell you that. So, I am hoping and praying that the next 10 will be a GREAT BIG improvement!

I hope you're having a wonderful week. I'm sad, so very, very sad. Please keep praying for me.

Love it! You just keep doing what you're doing, and you most certainly WILL self-publish your works. Thanks so much for your kind words and support. They brought me to tears. (The happy ones, though.) :)

Vicky said...

So fun... you are awesome at doing these and I look forward to them every time... I think it would take me all day to be as clever as you are :)

I too think YES self publish the poetry... I'll buy!

You are hilarious!!!

And you never know, the president may wanna hear your poetry. Maybe one of your kids will have the honor of running our country and they'll elect you poet laureate

Jenn@the loves of jenn said...

Self-publishing would be great! And I really hope your son doesn't get married in Vegas! :) I see you changed your blog to purple - is your daughter upset? :)

Vickie said...

He He!!

Hey, a beach house would be sooo nice! Woo hoo to self publishing!

Susan Fobes said...

You are a funny lady!
Ooh, your blue. (My favorite color so looks good!)

Paul C said...

Enjoyable post. I also like your new look on the blog- very uplifting.

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

You have quite the imagination...even your realistic list is funny! I foresee lots of grown and sexy fun in your future!

btw, love the blue!

Jenners said...

Oh .. now we have purple! Me likey! You're trying out new colors ever day!!?? : )

And I love your lists ... both of them. And did you know you can self-publish via Amazon? You should look into it!

Sniffles and Smiles said...

I love this!!! You are so witty! I think I'll hope for the first list for you, okay? ;-) Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend! ~Janine XO

Judy Croome said...

Kelly, I think the first list is the one you'll be living in 10 years time! Especially the reading your poetry to the President!

PS Tried numerous times to submit a poem on your Friday poetry post on Write with Pictures. Just wouldn't accept the post so here is the poem that your photo inspired in me:

Fingers of fir touch
Molten gold, melting the day
Into a velvet night
